Gallery ‘Iolani presents Crossing Cultures: The Art of Manga in Hawai‘i. This exhibition brings together Hawai‘i based artists and writers who use manga to explore their cross-cultural experiences—telling stories that examine the history and cultures of Hawai‘i.
The exhibition includes an overview of manga’s origins in Japanese art history including reproductions of scrolls and books that serve to influence the creative imagery of today’s manga being created in Hawai‘i. See original hand-drawn artwork by these Hawai‘i-based artists and learn about their art and storytelling techniques! Displayed as a part of the exhibition and drawn just for this exhibit is a manga that chronicles its history and development into a worldwide phenomenon.
